Do you keep all your kids artwork?

No, although with my oldest I tried to and veryyyyy quickly it was apparent that was not possible. I had am enormous tub that filled up quickly from all the preschool art that would come home every day. When we had our middle child, it was twice the artwork and I made a conscious effort to keep less. I’ve gone back through and pared it down, but I still need to do more. The really special items are framed and in the kitchen, or on the shelf.

My absolute favorite project ever came from my middle child’s Pre K class. The teacher made binders for all the kids and would add one piece of art per week, and at the end of the school year, gave them to the parents as a gift. It is beyond special. She also wrote what each drawing was – “my favorite season,” “me and my dad,” etc. You can see the progress in drawing and how the stick figure people change from beginning to end and it’s magical. Highly recommend doing this.

Another option is to take a photo of your favorite pieces and then throw the original away. Then you can add these photos to your scrapbooks, or for really special pieces, the photo can be blown up to a large scale by your local print shop and framed.
